The much loved Sky Sport NZRL Rugby League Roadshows are back for 2021!

In association with the Vodafone Warriors and Sky Sport, New Zealand Rugby League is bringing rugby league to the regions to showcase our great game and encourage new registrations.

The Roadshows provide local league clubs with the opportunity to have a presence at each activation to connect more directly with members of the community and find their future players.

There will be plenty of giveaways and spot prizes on the day for participants.

In addition to this, Kiwi League Kids (12 and under) who register with a club will later receive a Sky Sport starter pack which includes a brand new OPRO mouthguard, Kiwis/Ferns poster, rugby league ball, and ball bag.

NZRL General Manager of Community Ani Cherrington, says: “We are excited to see the Roadshows return for 2021 as they were really well received by our communities last year.

“Although further Covid-19 lockdowns cut our initial planned schedule short, we are grateful that we can still visit both Taupo and Whanganui, especially alongside the scheduled National 20’s game at Cooks Garden.

“These Roadshows are an important way for us to showcase and grow our game. It’s great we are able to do this in partnership with Sky Sport and the Warriors, and we to hope see our communities turn out in force this weekend.”

The Roadshows are a free event and open to all members of the community.
